Description

The braai is so much more than a social event or a meal. It is a ritual, an experience, perhaps the closest thing to a meditative state many of us will achieve. Even the vegetarians know that. Sometimes, however, things get burned, fights break out and somebody gets naked. And covered in potato salad. What does this have to do with the book you’re scanning curiously?

MK has a big problem: she has woken up a week later than she went to bed. Somebody has been feeding her cat. She has no explanation for it, but is smart enough to know it can’t be good.

In Johannesburg and Cape Town, sinister plots are afoot, and MK – no stranger to the deep end – may just be in over her head. The lady usually causing all the trouble now faces it from all sides: political fanatics, a Hollywood party girl, a secret agent, and most diabolical of all – local television…

Further adventures of Miss Kwa Kwa, from the scurrilous pen of Stephen Simm...

Praise for Miss Kwa Kwa:

‘Laugh out loud with a gem of a book... This novel is better than hilarious; Simm’s characterisations of everyone from a rural dorp to a Hillbrow prostitute to a politician are spot on. Male writers who can get into the head and the heart of a woman are thin on the ground and a delight to encounter. You will laugh aloud reading this book.’ – Rehana Rossouw, Business Day

‘An entertaining and neatly crafted romp... Read it for a rollicking, action-packed adventure with a cast of unusual characters.’ – Tumi Makgetla, Mail & Guardian

"This book is hilarious. MK is the most loving, charming, vile, disturbed, ambitious and shameless hussy I have ever encountered in a South African book. I loved her and found myself rooting for her to succeed.’ – City Press
